Okay, 2020. Pour out the beer.
As folks were getting out the fireworks for the 4th of July… Saturday night, Kanye West took it upon himself to announce his bid for the 2020 presidency.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

According to CNN, Kanye said in 2018 that if he were to run for president, he would model it after the Trump campaign but with the principles of Bernie Sanders.
Twitter is buzzing as a result of the big announcement. OF COURSE Kanye is trending.
Kanye West is 43 years old. He's NEVER voted in a presidential election once in his life.

Some think this is awesome and some think it’s a political ploy to help Donald Trump win in 2020. Sure, it would really liven up “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
If you’re going to be voting this election, be sure to research the candidates and advocate for your values by knowing their platforms. Stay informed. Ask lots of questions.
